Sculptra Aesthetic is an injectable made from poly-L-lactic acid that can be used in the face and also other areas such as the buttocks. The filler is non-reversible and requires multiple treatments to get a modest amount of plumping to the buttocks area. This treatment is generally reserved for those patients that can not have a regular Brazilian Butt Lift with fat grafting because they do not have the fat available for grafting or because they do not want the downtime of surgery. The results of Sculptra Butt Lift can last several years. Price per session is an injector fee of $1,000 and then $400 per vial. A typical session is 10 vials of Sculptra. Most patients space out sessions every 6 weeks and do 3 sessions.

"First-rate Care and First-rate Results! - Incredibly satisfied with my results. I woke up a couple months after surgery realizing I had forgotten I ever had or needed it in the first place, like I got to grow up without breasts-- and the euphoria from that is so worth it. Incredible both as my first experience with ANY surgery as well as my first experience with cosmetic surgery, Dr. Sigal put me at ease very quickly by being affirming, kind and excited about helping my body match me a little better. Would absolutely recommend Austin-Weston to trans people who are looking to have gender-affirming care by means of cosmetic surgery, and will most likely come back if I ever feel I need it."- F. / RealSelf / Oct 06, 2021
"I love Austin-Weston! The staff is so friendly and very knowledgeable. I went for a procedure called SculptSure and I was a little nervous about getting it done. I was afraid that it would be painful and that I wouldn’t really see any results. I talked with Shima Karimi and she explained to me what to expect in detail. She made sure to check in every 5-10 minutes during the procedure to make sure I was comfortable the whole time. The procedure was short, painless and easy! I can definitely see a big difference and I am super excited to go in for my second round of treatment. Thank you Austin-Weston!"- A.M. / Yelp / Sep 15, 2021
"I am almost done with my bikini and under arm laser hair removal with Shima is truly amazing. If you get jitters or nerves or retract, she is very patience and works with your fears or pain tolerance. Amazing work etiquette and standards all around. Couldn’t ask for a better facility, a better laser and a better esthetician."- H.F. / Yelp / Sep 09, 2021
"Dr. Weston made me look 20 years younger - After losing 110 pounds, I looked in the mirror and realized I lost at least half of that in my face. I felt great and looked awful, skin hanging from my neck and jowls that would make a bulldog jealous. I am very grateful to Austin Weston Clinic and in particular to Dr. Weston for a combination of his medical expertise and his artistic talent to turn back time. I am forever grateful to this wonderful man who made me look 20 years younger."- J. / RealSelf / Sep 08, 2021
"I have just had my second session and I already see a different in my waist line - I went to Shima for 2 session of Sculpsure. I had a wonderful experience. She was very detailed in explaining the procedure to me as well as post care. I was very comfortable throughout the procedure and Shima stayed in the room the whole time to ensure I was doing ok. I would definitely recommend going to Shima for your Sculpsure services. I have just had my second session and I already see a different in my waist line."- G. / RealSelf / Sep 06, 2021
What are the benefits of a Sculptra butt lift?
Volume loss is a common side effect of aging. Our body contours may appear sunken as a result. Sculptra is designed to add volume to the areas affected by this volume loss. Patients work with Austin-Weston, The Center for Cosmetic Surgery for the following reasons:
- Experience: Our professionals have performed countless cosmetic procedures with success.
- Customization: Each person’s individual goals and anatomy are taken into account to create natural-looking outcomes.
- Support: We offer patients pre-and post-operative care to ensure their comfort and safety throughout the Sculptra process.
Who is a candidate for Sculptra?
An evaluation is necessary to see if you are a candidate for Sculptra. The best candidates are adults in good overall health and do not have any active infections in the treatment area. Austin-Weston, The Center for Cosmetic Surgery works hard to ensure our patients are well-informed and comfortable with the procedures they undergo. This ensures that every treatment we perform is as safe and effective as possible.
Sculptra is administered during an in-office appointment that typically takes about 30 minutes. The injection treatment, including the dosage and injection location, is tailored during the procedure to fulfill the patient’s specific needs. The injection is given through a syringe and localized to flat areas of the buttocks. The procedure itself is not painful but there is some pain afterward and some patients may benefit from pain medications for a couple of days after injection. For the best results, the average patient is recommended to have at least 3 injection series over a few months.
What to Expect
Immediately following a Sculptra injection, there will be some mild swelling and redness at the injection site. This swelling resides over the first few days to weeks and the body then begins making collagen in the region. Injections are repeated at 4-6 week intervals to maximize volume.
Sculptra Butt Lift is recommended for patients who do not have enough fat to have a regular Brazillian Butt Lift, consisting of doing liposuction to one area and then grafting the fat to the buttocks region.
Sculptra Butt Lift FAQ
How long do Sculptra results last?
Similar to all filler products, nonsurgical butt augmentation with a filler does not offer permanent results, but your outcome can last for a very long time. As one of the longer-lasting fillers on the market, Sculptra can create optimal results, lasting for 2 – 3 years after your initial series of injections.
How does Sculptra augment my buttocks?
As a strong, deep filler product, Sculptra is formulated with injectable poly-L-lactic acid. As this unique filler is broken down, it can help your body stimulate the production of collagen. Due to this aspect, it can take up to 2 – 3 months and even up to a year for final, optimized results.
What if I want a significant amount of volume?
Within your consultation, our team will assess your buttocks and be able to provide you with realistic expectations as to what results Sculptra can offer you. If it is thought that another treatment (such as a Brazilian butt lift) will be able to give you the volume you desire, these treatment options will be discussed. While Sculptra can create a rounder, fuller look to the buttocks, in some cases, where much more volume is the goal, there are additional matters to discuss, such as cost, safety, and longevity.
